COM­MENT OF THE MONTH

Empire (UK) - - TALK TO US -

A FOND FAREWELL

When I was 12 I over­heard a boy called Luke Gaul talk­ing about films. He lent me his copy of

Empire (it had Troy on the cover) and this was the be­gin­ning of two re­la­tion­ships: the first with you, the sec­ond with Luke. Luke taught me that ev­ery film, good or bad, held value. We spent years de­bat­ing all kinds of cinema. Sadly, Luke passed away on 23 Au­gust, his loss deeply felt by ev­ery­one who knew him. I thought it may be a fit­ting trib­ute for him to have his name in the mag­a­zine that brought two 12-year-olds to­gether, and gave me an in­valu­able friend­ship. ben os­tell, via email A lovely sen­ti­ment, Ben. We’re sorry for your loss.
